WATCH: Miami releases JoJo Nicolas tribute video

Earlier this week, Miami football lost a member of its family when former defensive back JoJo Nicolas died at the age of 24 following a car accident. Nicolas was a part of the Hurricanes football team from 2007-11 and played for the New York Giants in 2012. 

"The University of Miami community suffered a deep loss with the passing of JoJo Nicolas," Miami head coach Al Golden said in a statement. "For all of us who were fortunate to know JoJo -- to coach him, teach him, play alongside him or simply befriend him -- we will forever carry his memory with us. Our prayers go out to his family and his loved ones and he will always be a cherished member of our family."

The school compiled game clips and behind-the-scene footage of Nicolas during his time with the Hurricanes for a tribute video, which you can check out below.
